Tire tracks mar a river bar in Salmon, Stealhead and Sturgeon habitat in the Chetco River.  The Chetco River, designated a national Wild and Scenic River, runs wide and shallow as it approaches the Pacific Ocean at Alfred A. Loeb State Park near the town of Brookings, Oregon on the southern Oregon Coast.  The short Chetco river, only 56 miles long drops rapidly from coastal mountains to the Pacific Ocean.
